Need for Speed World Open Beta

Need for Speed World is offering open beta testing of this MMO racing game that will run all weekend. Word is: "If you're new to World, here's a little taste of what we've got this time: 25 cars with performance customization packages available for each, a 50-level progression ladder, Private Matches so you can take on your friends, a Meeting Place for car shows and a whole new region, Camden for you to play around in."

Just downloaded it to give it a shot. Fun things I've learned!

1- The load time is pretty long for such a relatively small game.
2- It doesn't add a Windows firewall exception for itself.
3- It crashes when it can't connect to the server for #2.
4- It crashes when you try to change the resolution from 1024x768 to 1920x1200 (repeated three times).
5- It crashes when you try to change the resolution from 1024x768 to the slightly less challenging 1280x1024. Have given up and will drive with jaggies.
6- Guessing the servers are slammed right now, because it's taking ages to decide whether my nickname is in use. Can't do anything until it's done.

So, off to a brilliant start.

EXCITING UPDATE: It also crashes when I exit the game.
